Matchday 32 – team of the week (4-1-2-1-2):


Goalkeeper: Jiri Pavlenka, Werder Bremen
Pavlenka simply keeps impressing this season. The Werder keeper made several great saves against Borussia Dortmund and was arguably man of the match in the 1-1 draw.


Right-back: Rafinha, Bayern München
The Brazilian only played 45 minutes in the 4-1 win against Eintracht Frankfurt, but did enough to ensure a spot in the team of the week as he scored and set up a goal.

Central defender: Alexander Hack, Mainz
A strong display from the defender who saved Mainz on several occasions in the 3-0 win over RB Leipzig. Made a stunning block on the line and kept out Timo Werner's shot in the beginning of the match.

Central defender: Martin Hinteregger, Augsburg
The Austrian defender won almost 80 percent of his duels and was dangerous on set pieces in the other end. Wasn't at fault for any of Hertha's goals in the 2-2 draw.


Left-back: Nico Schulz, Hoffenheim
The offensive minded left-back has been very good in the second half of the season, and he made another convincing display in the 3-1 win over Hannover 96 in which he made an assist for the third match in a row.


Defensive midfielder: Thomas Delaney, Werder Bremen
The Dane worked hard in the centre of the park as always and also scored a nice goal with a clever header.

Right midfielder: Christian Gentner, Stuttgart
The Stuttgart captain oozed experience and calmness in the 1-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen. Also scored the match winning goal with a great header.

Left midfielder: Leonardo Bittencourt, FC Köln
Did what he could to try to keep FC Köln in the Bundesliga with two great goals, but it wasn't enough for 'The Billy Goats' who will be relegated to the 2. Bundesliga after a 2-3 loss to Freiburg.

Offensive midfielder: Lewis Holtby, Hamburger SV
Got on the scoresheet for Hamburger SV again in the 3-1 win over Wolfsburg and has now scored four goals in his last five appearances.


Striker: Nils Petersen, Freiburg
Was once again the deciding factor for Freiburg with two goals in the 3-2 win over FC Köln. Petersen has now scored 15 times this season - more than half of Freiburg's total of 29 goals.

Striker: Andrej Kramaric, Hoffenheim
Scored a hattrick when Hoffenheim beat Hannover 96 3-1. The third goal, when Kramaric lifted the ball over Hannover keeper Philipp Tschauner, was particularly memorable.

Hoffenheim - Hannover 96: 3-1
